White Mineral Oils

White mineral oils are highly refined, odourless, tasteless and have excellent color stability. They are chemically and biologically stable and do not support bacterial growth. Witco white oils make an ideal blending base for personal care and pharmaceuticl products. Their inert nature makes them easy to work with as they lubricate, soothe, soften, and hold in moisture in formulations. White mineral oils can be found in a variety of product lines such as antibiotics, babyoils, lotions, creams, shampoos, sunscreens and tissues.

Petrolatums

Petrolatums are homogenueous mixtures of oily and waxy long chain, saturated hydrocarbons. The moisturization delivered by petrolatum sets the standard by which all other moisturizers are measured. They are odourless and tasteless, and range in color from white to yellow. Relatively high-vicosity and shear strength, chemical and biological inertness and hydrophobic nature characterize petrolatums.
